Post your list of places that take NFC here because the list on Apple's website is .... Incomplete and only lists merchants that paid Apple for the "increased advertising" of their business. Let's see on a day to day basis, most places I go to, I will be able to shop with my iPhone 6. Places that I've tested my PayPass card: you will be able to use ApplePay at these places because they take PayPass Gas up Chevron Circle K Shell Gas Stations Mobil (if you have these in your area) Texaco Convenience store and drug Walgreens CVS Groceries Basha's (Arizona only chain) Whole Foods fry's/Kroger other stuff mcDs Carl's Jr. Panera Jamba Juice (AZ??) Big O Tires (car repair) The Home Depot Sports Authority Staples Petco Target Some Walmarts that have new terminals and shows four green circles on the screen. Verizon store T-mobile store AT&T store Vending machines that take credit cards These are only some of the places I can think of. But it looks like I will literally be able to pay with Apple Pay at *most* places that I shop. Honestly I don't think it'll be a problem for most people to find a place that'll take it. The problem is that most of these stores I go to, don't even advertise they take it. The Verifone terminal at Bashas for example don't mention NFC at all, not even the contactless logo. It just shows four green circles on the screen along with the "slide card" message. I tapped my PayPass card anyway and it worked. Another trick I recommend to people is they get the "MasterCard Nearby" app, this app will show people where they can pay with Apple Pay, because it shows all of the merchants that take PayPass. Just because Walmart isn't on the list doesn't mean your ApplePay adventure is over. There's plenty of places that'll take it, you just have to have an eye for it. Places don't even admit to taking it. If anyone has more to add to the list please do. Local places count!
